more significant than usual, and team obama is leaving it up to uncle joe biden to make their comeback. oh, boy. biden will have to make the case that president obama deserves a second term, and no one, including obama himself, has yet made that case. former presidential candidate newt gingrich who knows a thing or two about all of this is my very special guest. also this evening, the u.s. embassy in yemen was attack. expect the consulate attack in benghazi will be brought up in the debate tonight. neither president obama for vice president biden has faced the press with any tough questions about what did they know and when did they know it about bengz? and how dare team obama call this a political issue stirred up by republicans. that's remarkable. first, take a look at this. last week, the real clear politics electoral map had the president holding on to 251-181 electoral votes lead. today the map flipped. five states went from leaning obama to a tossup. that's michigan, new hampshire, pennsylvania, wisconsin and ohio. so it's now 201-181.. it's the narrowest electoral margi

rejection of joe biden. why is that? is team obama afraid, you know, shielding him from the media may make him look less prepared? why is that? >> i'm sorry. i didn't get the actual question. >> we've been asking for interviews from vice president joe biden. cnn has. and we've really not seen him in a sit-down in a couple of months and i'm curious. is there a fear perhaps in a one on one he may appear less prepared? >> well, i think that the vice president has been campaigning across this country and the priority is talking to the american people on the ground and battleground states and doing battleground tv. i don't know that he won't do a cnn interview between now and the election. i'm sure they'll try to. but his focus has been traveling the country, campaigning on behalf of this president. getting the message out on the ground and preparing for this debate and anxious to it have tonight. >> 9:00 eastern time. we'll be watching for it, stephanie cutter, department if i manager of the obama campaign. thank you. we'll be right back. ally bank. why they're always there to talk. i love you

. let's say it is smaller than the last one. palin-biden got a bigger audience in the first obama- mccain debate because people were fascinated by sarah palin. see biden do is go after ryan's record and some of the budget proposals that he has made in the past in the ryan plans and say that is the road romney, not what you are hearing now. he will cut this program, racist attacks. it will be interesting to watch how brian pivots off of that and says no, those were my ideas and those on offense and say your ideas do not work. that is why the economy is the way it is. >> was talk about the senate and the house. the senate is controlled by the democrats. republicans have tried to pick up enough seats to gain control. will the for republicans gain control of the senate? what is>> now i would put it ard 40% republicans taking the majority. olympia snowe retiring, todd akins becoming a biology instructor. hawaii and new mexico have not done as well as expected. democrats have 53 seats, republicans, 47. republicans need a three-seat net gain. republicans are going to win nebraska foresho

admit. biden will try to create some momentum for the obama team while ryan will try to prove last week's debate was not a one and done. a small post debate rise for romney, where in virginia romney picked up three points. he leads there, though a doifrnt poll from cbs shows obama still leading there. the "wall street journal" poll, mitt romney trails in florida and is down six in ohio. a quinnipiac poll shows him up three points in three other states. cnn's paul steinhauser is at the site in danville, kentucky with an inside look. >> reporter: 14 hours from now behind me on this stage, the only vice presidential debate in the campaign. they've been behind closed doors getting ready for this big showdown. the republican running mate got here to kentucky yesterday. before he arrived, he played a little bit of the expectations game, kind of lowering the bar for himself. >> joe biden has been on this stage many times before. it's my first time. sure it's a nervous situation because joe biden is one of the most experienced debaters we have in modern politics. >> as for vice president j

comments. >> obama and biden want to raise taxes bia trillion dollars? guess what? yes, we do. how they can justify raising taxes in the middle class that has been buried the last four years... how in lord's name, can they justify? >> he's going to let the big banks write their own rules, unchain wall street! they are going to put you back in chains. >> because of the decisions he has made... and the incredible strength of the american people, america has turned the corner! [cheers and applause] >> sean: all right. if that joe biden shows up tomorrow, it will be a very entertaining 90 minutes of television. meanwhile, new polls the romney surge continues, thanks to his stellar debate performance. we begin with the latest fox news survey, released a short time ago, which shows that governor romney has wrestled the lead from the president, thanks to a six-point swing after the meltdown in mile high in denver. we are seeing that movement in several other national polls. investors business daily shows that romney's lead has grown to 5 points among lickly voters n. this reuters poll, we are seei

. there's of course a lot of pressure on joe biden after president obama's lackluster debate performance last week. the vice president has been studying up on paul ryan's book, his speeches and his budget. >> i just want to make sure that when i say these things, that i don't have the congressman say no, no, no, i don't have that position or that's not the governor's position. >> we think he's probably going to come at me like a cannon ball. but the achilles heel he has is president obama's record. >> pew research find 51% view vice president biden unfavorabliy. three to four believes the edge goes to ryan. >>> voters are likely to be listening for two key issues during tonight's debate. new analysis from the harvard school of public health shows one in five voters is concerned about health care in the upcoming election. that's the highest the issue has been rank eed since the 1992 election. the economy takes the top spot for 51% of voters. those who said health care and medicare were the most important issues were most likely to support president obama. americans are evenly divided on t

george bush a virs. and president obama is hoping joe biden can do that for him tonight. >> i was wondering if you're going to ask that question, are you ready if something god forbid were to happen, a heartbeat away, do you make that point with paul ryan when the republican caricature of biden keeps pointing that out? this guy is heartbeat away from the president? it depends which side of the aisle you're on as to who wins the argument. biden has been around a long time, but you don't need to be -- you can be a relative newcomer and be more prepared to perhaps step into that job if you needed to. >> i think there would be -- there could be some utility of that argument for biden because ryan lacks foreign policy experience. but because ryan has a reputation as somebody who is bright and intellectual leader of the party, i think that will not be as potent an attack. i will say i talked to both bob dole and dan quayle and they said two things that i thought were useful. one is quail said, look, yes, biden makes mistakes, but he makes mistakes when he goes off message and freelances
